Donald hopes to join exclusive group

DORAL, Fla. -- Luke Donald, winner of this year’s World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, could join a group of five players who have won more than one official World Golf Championships in their careers:

-- Tiger Woods (7-Bridgestone Invitational; 6-Cadillac Championship; 3-Accenture Match Play Championship)

-- Geoff Ogilvy (2-Accenture Match Play Championship; 1-Cadillac Championship)

-- Darren Clarke (1-Accenture Match Play Championship, 1-Bridgestone Invitational)

-- Phil Mickelson (1-Cadillac Championship, 1-HSBC Champions)

-- Ernie Els (2-Cadillac Championship). He would be the second European (Clarke) with multiple wins.

Donald is also seeking to join Tiger Woods as the only players to win back-to-back World Golf Championships events, with Woods performing the feat multiple times (1999, 2002-‘03, ‘03-‘04, ‘05, ‘06, ‘07-‘08).

A win by a European this week would mark the first time in World Golf Championships history that back-to-back events were won by Europeans. The 2010 season was the first and only time that Europeans won more than one World Golf Championships event (Ian Poulter -- Accenture Match Play Championship; Edoardo Molinari -- HSBC Champions).
